The 2019 British Open Speedgolf Championships was hosted at
Foxhills in Surrey on Sunday 28th July 2019
One of the most unique events in the British Golfing Calendar, welcome to a faster pace of golf: Speedgolf!
Foxhills is a magnificent Golf resort offering some of the best golf in Surrey. The 2019 British Open Speedgolf Championships was played on the prestigious Longcross Championship Course, widely considered the best tree lined course in the county and ranked one of the top 100 golf courses in England. It also proved a fantastic venue for The British Open Speedgolf Championships.
Players competed individually to complete 18 holes of Speedgolf with the lowest Speedgolf Score. Competitors were set off at 6 minute intervals with our customary running start and finish.
Our 2019 Champion was Jamie Reid from New Zealand who shot 81 in a blistering 40 minutes and 57 seconds giving him a Speedgolf Score of 121:57. Chris Benians (GB) and Mikko Rantanen (Finland) both shot 74, just two over PAR, but Chris was a little faster giving them second and third place respectively.
Chris Fenn took the Amateur Title, whilst Kathy Leppard was the women’s champion. Leaderboard and Full Results.
